Cedele's Red Seafood Risotto
Cedele’s Red Seafood Risotto

What: Organic Australasian fare.

Pros: Fresh and feel-good (as in you will feel good because of the healthy decision you made to eat it).

Cons: Inconsistent service (sometimes very polite and sometimes they don’t care if you exist) and not all items are that good.

Verdict: Go but choose your outlets and dishes wisely – I suggest sticking to the pasta and grill & greens! Also, the ice-cream is worth a try.

Tian Kee & Co

TCS Cheesecake (SGD6.50) and an Iced Snag (SGD6.50)!
TCS Cheesecake (SGD6.50) and an Iced Snag (SGD6.50)!
What: A derelict-chic cafe housed in what used to be an old school provision shop.

Pros: REALLY good cheesecakes (Toffee Caramel Salted Cheesecake, pictured above, is an awesome flan/cheesecake hybrid and their famous Yuen Yang Cheesecake – coffee and tea combo – is refreshing) and coffee (esp the Snag – bandung + coffee = WHOA). Convenient to get to since it’s super close to Mountbatten MRT.

Cons: Savory food doesn’t seem to be a strong point and I would not recommend the gelato.

Verdict: Go visit for dessert or tea time and then stop at the old-school playground at Dakota Crescent to take pictures/swing on tyres!

Our burgers and The Naughty Fries.
Our burgers and The Naughty Fries.

What: A Western (Aussie/American/British??) burger joint with some Asian touches.

Pros: HEARTY, tasty and very hip. Definitely have the Naughty Fries (SGD9)!

Cons: Lamentably slow service and pricey (SGD18-25 for the burgers – and they don’t come with sides).

Verdict: Visit them and enjoy the food but be very, very patient.

Pork Belly Burrito Bowl with added Guacamole and a Mango Margarita

What: Casual Mexican with a strong Asian influence.

Pros: YUMMY, convenient (at the Club St/Ann Siang Hill intersection) and hip.

Cons: Kinda expensive (tacos/burritos/bowls start at SGD12, SGD2 for extra condiments, SGD15 for margaritas) and the decor = shambolic.

Verdict: GO! It’s yummyyy and they have exciting HOT SAUCES.
